frater...thou hast illuminated cringe. thou'llt lose patronage, forsooth.

A lot of US leftists don't consider unions for athletes, entertainment or porn to be legit bc they're not on working in a Soviet spark factory pounding girders. Just bc these workers make stuff you enjoy in your leisure time doesn't make their work less grueling or dangerous.

The goalposts are whatever they think can hurt you. If you're not out, you're not enough like your gender assigned at birth. If you say "I'm trans," all of a sudden you are too much like your gender assigned at birth.
